This webinar will provide participants the opportunity to delve deep into the meaning of allyship and answer the questions: How can we be life-long allies to marginalized communities? How can we embrace the discomfort of acknowledging our own privilege? How can we move towards workplace solidarity? The answers to these key questions will expose our biases and draw us closer to more inclusive and respectful spaces. Using intersectionality as a lens helps us to recognize how are identities and experiences are informed by systemic oppression and most importantly, how our allyship should recognize this too. Join for an engaging conversation with interactive activities.
